Black Knight -- one of the best Early Solid State games ever made (System 3-9)
One of the best taunts in pinball, "Ha ha ha !" when you fail to use Magna Save in time.
Great sound effects.
Beautiful playfield with every primary color represented equally.
Old school voice chip that sounds awesome.
One of the best multi-balls in pinball with the split level playfield (it cracks your brain -- watching two realms at once -- very fun)
* First second level playfield
* First "downhill" playfield ball release mechanism (non saucer)
* First hurry-up (target value decending over time)
* First last chance ball saver on drain
It's certainly the meanest game in my collection. Most games are under 3 minutes in duration, if not 2 minutes.
I started up a Black Knight Club so that other Black Knight owners can share the over-the-top love for the machine as well as: repair help, restoration tips, part requests, requesting wiring photos, topper ideas, best LED usage, color matching tips, and upgrade ideas...
